When is the best time to visit Bora Bora?
This is an oft-asked question when folks consider a journey to the Southern Hemisphere.
Bora Bora is roughly 1,200 miles south of the equator.
And because of this proximity, you will find that the length of each day is approximately the same all year (11-13 hours), unlike the disparity we see in the various seasons in North America from summer to winter.
Also, like Hawaii, the temperatures are relatively the same throughout the year, with daytime highs ranging from 79-83º.
Regarding the weather in Bora Bora, it is essential to remember that countries below the equator have seasons opposite from those in North America. Their summer is our winter, and their winter is our summer. And the farther south you get from the equator, the more this is pronounced.
May (Shoulder Season)
May is a month of transition from summer to winter. Our first visit to Bora Bora was in May, and we enjoyed perfect weather every day.
June – August (High Season)
June is the beginning of winter in Bora Bora. The heavy rains of the summer months are long gone, and you will likely experience nothing but clear skies and lower humidity levels. And with this idyllic weather, you will likely encounter the highest prices as demand increases.
September and October (Shoulder Season)
These are the best months to view humpback whales migrating from Antarctica. Although the temperatures will begin rising, the humidity levels are still comfortable.
November to April (Low Season)
The summer months are hot and very humid. Our most recent visit to Bora Bora was in March, and while the temperatures were not all that high (compared to the heat we have in Arizona), the humidity levels were stifling. I found myself taking 3-4 showers a day. However, if you can stand the heat, you will likely find this time of year less expensive.
How to Visit Bora Bora
Because of the natural beauty found in Bora Bora, romance travelers flock to the abundant overwater bungalows located in the turquoise lagoon waters surrounding the island. Carol and I first visited Bora Bora back in 2012. We enjoyed a four-night stay at the Four Seasons Resort Bora Bora and loved every minute of our stay.

Another popular way to visit Bora Bora and the surrounding islands of French Polynesia is aboard a cruise ship. Carol and I enjoyed a fabulous cruise with our friends from Paul Gauguin Cruises. To read our review article, please CLICK HERE.
